  • Don't give bad review because no audio. VGA has never supported audio.

It is your fault i While Kenneth G. is right, he's mistaken in giving it only 3 stars. VGA does not and has never supported audio. It is your fault if you buy this thinking it has the same functionality as HDMI. It does exactly what it's supposed to, display high definition video. That is all. It's like buying a 60hz television and giving it a low rating because it isn't 3D. 5 stars.

It works seamlessly, allowing viewers to see everything on the ipad: apps, safari, camera, everything. I appreciate that the projector recognizes it with no fuss whatsoever. It's an exciting tool and well worth the purchase!

    I bought this so that I could watch purchased TV shows with my iPad 4 connected to my NEC Multimedia projector. It's an older proj I bought this so that I could watch purchased TV shows with my iPad 4 connected to my NEC Multimedia projector. It's an older projector that does not support HDMI. However, despite the description for the VGA adapter that says you can watch movies and shows on TVs and projectors, it does NOT work. When I play the show I purchased from iTunes, I am given a message that says "THE CONNECTED DISPLAY IS NOT AUTHORIZED TO PLAY PROTECTED MOVIES." I get the same error message when I connect my computer monitor to the adapter.

    Perhaps the description of this product should be changed to say that you can watch movies and shows on TVs and Projectors--EXCEPT the ones you buy from iTunes? I feel that Apple is sending me the message that I should get my content from torrents rather than buying it from iTunes. Are there Apple-branded projectors or monitors that will support this adapter? What's the point of having a VGA adapter for your device if you cannot watch iTunes content that you purchased?!

  • Died after less than six months of minimal use (less than ten times)

    I purchased this adapter in the Fall of last year. I'm a teacher and wanted to use my iPad Air in class rather than lugging my Mac I purchased this adapter in the Fall of last year. I'm a teacher and wanted to use my iPad Air in class rather than lugging my MacBook to present my PowerPoint lectures. I used it about 10 times at the most and it worked perfectly. But when I geared up for this semester I planned to use it again. I plugged it in and while the presentation appeared on the projector screen it immediately began to blink off and on and it did so the entire time. Thinking that it was the projector I contacted our tech crew and asked them to troubleshoot. After they did I came to class the following day and the same thing happened. They came again, had their own adapter, plugged my iPad into theirs and I lectured problem free. The problem was my basically brand new adapter. I have always kept the adapter stowed away in my iPad carrying bag and never dropped it or anything. So why is it dying? After reading all the reviews on the Apple site this is apparently a widespread and recurring problem. And some of you might say that I can just get another since its under warranty, but think about it: why should I NEED to get a replacement in less than six months??? On what planet is THAT good business??? I'm an Apple person to the core (ha!) but this is ridiculous. if I invest in the Lightning to HDMI adapter will it do the same thing??? I'm not taking the chance.

    For those of you who gave it glowing reviews, or think other folks are just plain dunce-tards, I would like to hear from you a few months from now. Then we shall see if you still think this $50 piece of junk is worthy of 5 stars.

  • Laggy video output

    1.0 out of 5 stars

    Both the HDMI and VGA lightning video adapters introduce lag to video output that wasn't present with the 30 pin adapters. Because Both the HDMI and VGA lightning video adapters introduce lag to video output that wasn't present with the 30 pin adapters. Because of this my old iPad3 is better for running VJAY (audio-visual performance app) than a brand new iPad Air 2. Disappointed that Apple, a company that used to be the standard for creative types, is pushing a standard like lightning adapters that can't perform well enough for artistic applications.

I bought this $50 cable for the sole purpose of watching a movie i bought from itunes on a larger screen and it does not do that. I thought it would be as easy as my kindle that i just connect and play but was a huge wast of money. Please do not buy this. You would think a movie you buy would be able to play wherever you want it to but all they want you to do is spend more money on itunes tv.
